301 sick – from one restaurant? Flicks E. coli O157 outbreak continues to grow

With 137 confirmed cases and 164 probable cases of E. coli O157 linked to Flicks restaurant in Belfast, and with no public explanation or guess as to how so many could get so sick from one diner in Ireland, the incident is taking on E.coli-O111-in-sprouts proportions.

The only thing investigators will say in the month-long outbreak is people should wash their hands and don’t show up to work sick.
